Charles Newman - Composer, Producer, Music Supervisor (IMDB)
Having worked on film projects for over two decades now, Newman started his foray into film music with one of his first song placements in the cult classic film Empire Records, when his band PLEASE worked with Talking Head / producer Jerry Harrison and mixer Tom Lord-Alge on their song "Here it Comes Again” landing them in the film and on the platinum selling A&M Records soundtrack. From there he went on to supply music as a composer, producer and work as a music editor on any array of projects, as his label Mother West began to amass a catalog of indie artists and represent other composers and producers. Recently Newman has scored an array of award winning documentaries and recently music supervised projects that include "All These Small Moments" starring Molly Ringwald, Jemima Kirke and Brian James D'Arcy, and the feature film "Monday" for Robert Rodriguez's "Rebel Without a Crew Project" and TV series. Currently he’s working on the film “Millennium Bugs” as music supervisor and creating the score with his former band PLEASE, and supervising the Japanese rockabilly western “Johnny Can’t Escape” which is in development.
